Join Josh Long of SpringSource, a division of VMware to talk about the issues surrounding cloud adoption facing modern day programmers. Today, applications are being delivered over platform-as-a-services like VMWare’s Cloud Foundry, Heroku, and Google App Engine. This is a developer centric approach to clouds, and – as everybody’s investing in PaaS – understanding the problems modern developers face on these platforms and how others are solving them can be very helpful.
